    just mentioning if anyone is around and wants to shoot a little live craps.
    wedding in Baltimore , Im going to be right at the Baltimore harbor area, and I know theres a casino a mile away, but I was told best to avoid it,(don't recall the brand casino, its across the street from the holiday inn, that's what I remember)
    following week another family event and we will take a ride to Grantville, I need some table time.

    On a thursday, at Horseshoe Casino at the Balt harbor, you will be lucky to find a second
    table open. The tables will be jammed with the hood. If you have a DI toss you may receive
    open ridicule by the players so be forewarned, if that is your thing. They open more tables
    around 8pm so avoid the Horseshoe until then if you want to have a ghost of a chance at your
    favorite position and avoid waiting an hour or more for another turn.

    Maryland Live casino is only 10-15 minutes further south via 295 S.(Lombard St. to Greene St.
    left and it becomes 295 S.). They usually have at least 2 tables open and often have more
    open much earlier in the day than the Horseshoe. When traveling to Balt. I rarely
    even stop at the Shoe because they're too cheap to open up more tables earlier in the day.

    Both tend to be $15 earlier in the day and then go to $25 later on.
    Shoe has ATS. MD Live does not.

    How could you tell, that they were "DI Shooters"? Perhaps their bulging wallets, gave them away? :cool:

    guys that spend 6-10 or more seconds carefully setting up dice in a pattern, then carefully grip them the same way and always seem to make mechanical like tosses I just figure are practicing DI theory.
    once those dice hit the back wall, I fail to see any type of control since they dice move and fly in every direction tumblilng in every direction and never landing in the same place.
    but the setting up of the dice and careful grip and release just makes me think they are trying to achieve some type of dice control.

    just wanted to mention, I fucked up my knee this week, while Im moving around a bit, there is a chance on my Baltimore trip next weekend I might not be able to visit a casino if Im in the current condition I am in now. I might take my wife, but I don't think Id stand at a table and I doubt Id pull over a bench since I hate people who sit at craps tables.
    next week is far enough away I still have confidence Ill be able to handle a bit of standing and walking.

    Delaware park was empty earlier
    2 tables going 10 dollar min
    5 times odds
    I went back and forth between placing 2 bets or come with odds
    Down and up never more than 150 either way
    Was up 55 dollars and chucked the dealer a red and joined my wife
    She was killing it,winning on machinevafter machine
    I took my 50 dollar win to the auto roulette
    I'm walking with a cane as my knee is fucked up and I wanted to sit
    Hit a number left with an extra 49

    Got here I'm guessing after masters ended ? Tables were packed
    No spots so I did something I rarely do,sat at blackjack
    I played 25,40,40,60,60,80,80
    Different bonus bets,lucky ladies,if you get queens of hearts pair and dealer pulls blackjack you get 1000 to one
    No bj,you get 125 to one and then smaller
    Match the dealer bets,get total of twenty first 2 cards it's 3 to 1
    Didnt pay much attention to them
    I made less than 100 but was thrilled to win something
    End seat was winning every hand
    Looked over and craps tables had plenty of spots so I went over
    1 hour later plus 600 and change
    Tossed in 11 bucks and I'm back in room
    Again,my wife played over 2 hours and didn't lose
    Didn't win but she's happy she can play and not lose
    Will be back after some rest
    Way way too long weekend in Baltimore with the young-uns and they kept us at bar parting way too late

    A bit after that another 3 and change
    And then before leaving another 2 and change
    I absolutely am back on track
    I played 3 sessions this evening
    All 3 were nice winners
    700 then 850 then I decided to go on with 300, bet 15 flat with full odds 6 point I went to 150 odds and bet 25 9 and 30 8 and within 5 minutes I was up over a grand
    I put some on bottom rack so I'd walk up at least 600 but managed to leave with 815 up
    Gave the dealer the 15 took my 8 hundred win
    I haven't won 3 grand in a long time last time I think was last January don't remember now
    My wife's win was fabulous she's on cloud nine
    I told her it's time to leave

    My wife reminded me she won 26 dollars this afternoon before we left to rest
    To me that's breaking even but that offended her,she won and she made sure I knew that
